MacFarlane’s Celtic Pub has been the Lake Charles go-to for an Irish pub experience for nearly two decades. The servers wear traditional kilt attire adorning the hunting colors of the MacFarlane clan. The family-owned and operated pub is conveniently located in downtown Lake Charles just off Interstate 10. The bar boasts more than 140 Belgian/Scottish beers and premium whiskeys to go along with an extensive menu that focuses on seafood and traditional pub fare! MacFarlane’s is a perfect lunch, brunch or dinner spot any time of the year, but especially shines on St. Patrick’s Day
